with executive action. take a listen. >> well, i think that there are a number of things, and those are things that we're going to be talking about over the course of the next few weeks. not an extended period of time. the president, i guess, will be talking about this, but have specific proposals for congress to consider. we'll also look at what executive action the president might take. megyn: joining me now, chris stirewalt, our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. so what kind of executive action is he talking about, chris? when he had the assault weapons ban in place from '94 to 2004, it was a big political deal, and a lot of folks who voted for it wound up getting kicked out of office because, you know, gun rights are something people feel very passionately about in the country. if it could have been done by executive action, in other words, that's probably how other presidents would have been done it too. >> well, certainly, the president in a second term might feel differently about this than he did in the first term. he has some latitude when
neurosurgeon and two forensic pathologists and based on their unanimous conclusion that rafael's action did not meet the standard of, quote, no margin of doubt or possibility of error in terms of deserving this medal. >> right. megyn: that's why secretary gates decided not to award -- >> you're absolutely right. but none of those gentlemen were in the room facing the combat that rafael and his marines faced. that's where you have a problem here. and let me tell you about secretary gates. you should the bush administration -- under the bush administration, not a single medal of honor was given to a living recipient. you had over 246 medals of honor in vietnam, only 10 have been given -- all posthumously -- under the bush administration to living recipients now, but only ten since 9/11. that's kind of the broader picture here. secretary gates did not see one single action in iraq or afghanistan that warranted the medal of honor to a living person. that's troublesome, because i will tell you from firsthand experience those acts of bravery and courage were being committed every single day. so u

-- >> uh-huh. megyn: -- in the absence of any command action to do the same could leave an objective observer feeling that the judge was not impartial. now, this is him, by the way, before he got charged with murder. you can see how important it was for him to have his beard before he got charged with murder. suddenly things changed once you have to be identified in court by the witnesses who say they saw you shoot and kill 13 people. but why -- is that true? were there no command action to him by his superiors in the military to shave the thing? >> no, that's the interesting nugget in all of this, is if it really is the responsibility -- which it is -- of the command and not the court to insure that he shaves his beard, then who's that commander? he didn't immediately move on forcing those standards. as you mentioned, this was not something he was doing in 2009, 2010 or 2011. just recently decided to do it as part of his delay in protest. you're a lawyer, i'm not, megyn, but i know a truism of defense attorneys is if the facts are against you, argue the law. if the law's against you
in that position. >> the only way we'll get action on this debt. we keep spending and spending and raising our debt by $6 trillion every obama term. that's what catastrophic. the republicans need to stick to the boehner rule. a dollar of spending cuts for every dollar in spending increases. why give in on taxes and the fiscal cliff fight when you will have all the leverage. megyn: simon? >> in the rasmussen poll that came out today the republicans lost 10 points since the election in the congressional generic fight. they are losing this economic argument right now. if they pull what mark is saying, you are going to see the republican party's numbers in the 20s. they have no leverage on this thing. >> not going to happen. megyn: we'll leave it at that. thank you both. just ahead. a much more somber note. new warning about the sarin gas threat in syria. city drivers claim a class action that the traffic cameras are actually rigged. soot whole world is watching and the president of the united states made clear there will be consequences if the assad regime makes a terrible mistake by using these chemi
and it is not an excuse. these people are responsible for their actions. but if we don't look at that cause, if we don't learn to see it, understand it, see the signs, and learn how to intervene, as parents, educators, friends, citizens of this nation, we will see this cycle repeat again and again. we need to look at it, to get over our own discomfort. to identify the signs, and to be able to learn to intervene. and secondly, if we know that we have a child who is violent, who is out of control, who is in fact suffering from these kinds of symptoms, we need to take them to a hospital, to a:i can to a doctor like myself and not leave them in the presence of something. megyn: i have 50 seconds. 60 seconds before hard break. but i have to get this in. is there a place for them in the system? do we commit them? is it just the -- >> is there a place? megyn: place for people who haven't committed a crime but don't necessarily warrant commitment? >> megyn, hear is the place. the place is in our own minds. as members of this community to identify the signs so that we can take them to the places where we can g

. >> -- that the president has any responsibility with their actions. he told them to fight for what they believe in, not to be violent. alisyn: lars? >> fight for what they believe in? i've got to tell you something, leslie, the president did embolden these actions. the fact is i've been covering unions for the best part of 35 years, and you almost always see illegal activities, violence, assaults and this kind of behavior from unions that are on strike. and you say they have a right to be angry? the people of michigan have a right to change their laws through the process. and what these union thugs are trying to do is swarm the capitol and through bullying tactics and physical intimidation get the state of michigan and its representatives to go a different direction not through the legal process, but by being physically intimidating. and you think that's something to be proud of? alisyn: leslie, what's curious here is that two years ago when some of these very similar scenes were breaking out in madison, wisconsin, over the collective bargaining proposal there, the president really stayed out of t
what action, if any he is willing to take. are the media, are they asking the right questions and what are we to make of answers we got from mr. carney? >> they're interesting questions, that's for sure, megyn and in terms of the responses we saw from the white house press secretary yesterday and in recent days i think it really does come down to two points. one is politics and the other is practical reality. i think it is important to stipulate of course the president abhores these types of heinous and horrific acts. we all do. we're all mourning and just horrified what we saw. when the president spoke especially in the immediate aftermath he sort of had to compose himself. a father of two young girls. this is something that the nation comes together to mourn over but at the end of the day he is still the president of the united states and politics is something that involves something prioritizing and actions speak louder than words. jay carney in a later clip you didn't play, to rank the priorities. is this a top priority? biel not try to rank those priorities. the fact is we've seen
pending further action. the "new york post" is reporting those folks are still on the state department payroll. eric boswell who they said resigned did not resign and all four will be back to work before too long. >> they just shifted the deck chairs and they want to make the american people believe that the state department has held people accountable for their lack of security and sending help to four brave americans. this is incredibly inept of the state department to think that it continue to fool the american public. pathetic. >> reporter: we've asked the state department about this and they have chosen so far not to clarify or deny any of it. keep in mind that right now, they're trying to transition from the clinton era to the kerry era. >> secretary clinton as you heard her say before has pledged to have a smooth transition with her successor. i don't have any phone calls or other activities of hers to read out other than to say she continues to be on the mend and continues to recover. >> reporter: i spoke to one republican senate staffer this morning who said the sense he gets
going in with military action? no. but if you are going to be consist meant your policy, that means protecting and helping those protecting and helping us. >> the senate appropriations committee voted to cut the pakistani's assistance. senator rand paul wants to cut all aid until this guy is released. as we touched on a moment ago, is that fraught with more peril for us in our interests? >> senator paul wants to cut all aid regardless. he's always looking for any way to cut foreign aid. but i think that the administration has -- they have to decide what is the most important thing, is it having drones flying over pakistan and take out al qaeda leaders or would-be tear rifts or is it getting this doctor out. i'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt. >> you have to look at pakistan. pakistan was harboring usama bin laden. what kind of partnership is this. we are break them to be able to fly drones over their country. >> and supply lines for our troops in afghanistan. megyn: it's a p.r. war. i imagine it am not that easy to recruit this guy that's being harbored in his own commu
to take more action to identify and treat mental health issues, 86% said yes. >> i think this will be the most interesting aspect of this task force and how broad it is. one of the real questions here, what can government, what can the federal government, do if anything to make it easier for civil commitment it? to take people that presented themselves as risks, could be potential shooters in an instance like this down the road and help families who have identified them and to solve that problem. megyn: this has got to be part of the discussion. it has got to be part of the discussion. 86% of the american people see it that way. we'll see. we'll see if the task force turns out to be one-dimensional or focuses on the bigger picture. steve, thanks. >> thanks, megyn. megyn: interestingly president obama was just named "time" magazine's "person of the year", beating out a couple other folks who made a lot of news in the last 12 months. just ahead our panel weighs in. >>> tsa appears to be doing damage control after stopping and searching a young girl in a wheelchair without t
of them thought the union actions were despicable with one saying, and i'm quoting here: the survival rate -- speaking of pancreatic cancer -- is so low, it is one of the least-funded cancers. it's hard to understand why people would protest an event like this. the union, of course, beliefs hardball tactics are sometimes necessary to get what they want. we contacted the union, they have not yet given us a statement about this, but needless to say, they didn't gain a lot of support by showing up at this cancer fundraiser and protesting. megyn: did you have to walk through their protest in order to attend this thing? >> reporter: well, yeah. i mean, they were letting people through, that's our understanding, but they were standing outside, and they were screaming at the ceo, mostly aimed at james dolan, saying that he was greedy, and his band was playing. so, i mean, that's not all -- you look at the signs there. there are people kind of walking by there. they weren't stopping people from attending, they were just making it very clear what their stance on this was. megyn: all right. trace, t
